Description 

Located just north and slightly west of Punk Rock about 100-200 meters. The formation has a north summit with "Planetismal" 5.9 in the sun on the S.E. face. It is a straight in hand crack with a slight zig-zag near the top. On the south summit are "The Towering Inferno" 5.11c * and "The Poseidon Adventure" 5.11b *. These two are in the shade all day.

Getting There 

Walk north past Punk Rock in the main Wonderland wash. Turn west in the first wash system and look for a small (from that distance) formation with a corridor splitting it to the N.W. about 100-200 meters.

Follow this steep crack to the summit. The initial section the climb is pretty gritty (as is the last 10 feet). But, if this (and Towering Inferno) saw more traffic, it could clean up into a 3+ sta...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
